How to Play

1. Place activity mat or blanket on the floor and place the toys/objects on the blanket to create the "playground" area.

2. Lay the infant on his/her front or back to reach, kick or touch the toys on the "indoor playground".

3. Choosing objects with different colours, sounds, textures and sizes will keep your baby interested in learning and playing.

4. Change the toys/objects each time to keep the activity exciting and creative.

The Playground Song:

With my hands and with my feet,

I want to touch, I want to meet

Everything in my surround

As I wiggle on the ground.

With my eyes and with my ears,

I want to see, I want to hear

Everything in my surround

As I wiggle on the ground.

Change it up / Alternatives / Additional Options

If the toys do not play music or make sounds, play some quiet background music to get your baby moving during this activity.
